Senior Special assistant on media and publicity to President Buhari, Garba Shehu, says President Buhari’s recent trip to the United Kingdom is not for medical tourism.
Shehu disclosed this while featuring on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, he said the president has maintained a relationship with his doctors in the UK for over 30 years.
Garba said this is not the first time the president will embark on a medical trip, since he assumed office in 2015. Speaking on the development, Shehu said the decision of the president to embark on the medical trip is “wise and quite correct”, adding that it doesn’t speak well for Buhari to change his doctors every year because of distance.
“I think that, unfortunately, there is the misconception of the president’s trip, seen in the context of medical tourism,” he said.
“President Buhari is not a medical tourist — if somebody has kept retainership with medical experts; we are talking about 30 years and plus.
